Adaptive Wakeboarding Journey

$1,960 of $35,000 goal

Raised by 16 people in 7 months
Created June 15, 2018



By now you’ve probably seen me on social media; flying through the air with a wakeboard attached to my feet. I'm having a heck of a lot of fun! Wakeboarding is an incredible sport and I couldn't be happier that I get to do what I love daily. I think it's important that everyone knows why I have decided to pour everything I have into wakeboarding and what I hope to accomplish.


My mission is to grow the sport of adaptive wakeboarding by providing inspiration, coaching and peer support to new adaptive wakeboarders. When adaptive wakeboarding enters the Paralympics; I am going to ensure that there are many like myself that are up to the challenge because they have been exposed to quality training and a competitive adaptive community. In the meantime, I will continue to raise the bar for adaptive riding through dedicated training and a whole lot of competitions. My goal is to show the world that there really isn't any limit to what's possible for an adaptive wakeboarder.


Last year I packed up everything I had and made the trip from Illinois to Florida to start on what would be a lifelong undertaking. I didn't know how I was going to accomplish what I had in mind; but I knew it was worth my time and effort to try.The hardest part is knowing what I am capable of and what other adaptive athletes could accomplish. Someone just needs to take the lead and be the first person to step out and be bold enough to believe that there really isn't any limit to what is possible.


I am ready and willing to be that person, but it isn't an easy undertaking. To accomplish the goal it is going to take being surrounded by others who can provide encouragement and support. I’m asking for your donations to help provide funding that will allow me the means to travel to where I am most needed to raise awareness for adaptive wakeboarding. A portion of this funding will help to defray entry fee costs for competitions and will give me resources so that I can devote myself to teaching and coaching at adaptive wakeboarding clinics to bring new riders into the sport.


I thank you for your contributions and the lives that will be affected through them.


Sincerely,

Aaron Cutler

2018 National Adaptive Champion

Finally back home and settled after an amazing 2018 @thewwa #wakeparkworlds. After taking a few moments to gather my thoughts; I still can’t believe that I am a world champion for my division. I couldn’t be happier.
The WWA has been so supportive throughout this competition series; including these words from their most recent press release “ Aaron Cutler took the Adaptive Standing World title, making WWA History by being the very first adaptive athlete to land a crow mobe at a WWA Wake Park event earning him a huge 100.00 point final score and claiming the 2018 World title. It is moments like these that highlight the true progression in wake and an athlete’s constant pursuit to push beyond what’s ever been done.” I am so happy to use this momentum and hard work to help build the next generation of adaptive athletes. And a very big thank you to everyone that has supported me along the way.

Had a wonderful time introducing new adaptive rider Ashley to the sport. She’s already planning on competitions! And of course Momo joined us again. She’s turning into quite the shedder! Thanks to everyone that supports me and makes little clinics like this possible! I am going to continue to find others with limb differences and bring them into this sport!
